About Me


To learn as much as I can about life and the world while having a good time.


I spent 4 years teaching English in Japan and travelling in Asia. After that I spent a year volunteering and travelling in South America. So many people hosted me and made made that the best year of my life. I spent most of my time on WWOOF farms, but also had several Couchsurfing opportunities.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have had such great experience staying with other people. They were always welcoming and recommended great places to visit. I stayed at two different houses in Colombia and I will never forget either of those experiences.


I love biking, dancing salsa, cooking, gardening-farming, hiking, camping, studying, reading, volleyball...and of course travelling :)

Me encanta trotar, bailar (salsa, merengue, bachata), cocinar, agricultura, trekking, campemiento, estudiar idiomas, leer, volei, viajar...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I climbed Mt. Fuji and saw the sun rise above a sea of clouds. It was worth hiking through the clouds and rain all night. It was amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach English and I know how to cook many things. I'd love to learn regional cooking, Spanish, and organic/natural farming methods. I would like to practice my Japanese and French so I don't forget them!
Puedo enseñar ingles y como cocinar pan con o sin horno. Me gustaria aprender cocinar platos tipicos, español, y cosas de agricola. Tambien quiero hablar en japones y frances porque olvido rapido.

What I Can Share with Hosts

If you have a garden, I would love to help out with the garden work :)
